Set across 14 acres of the wider Birling Estate in West Malling, Kent, The Manor Gardens is a truly magnificent wedding venue. Owned by the same family since 1435, this property is rich in history as well as beauty, lending itself to idyllic days steeped in charm. Hidden away amongst enchanting woodlands and only available for a select number of dates each year, a wedding at The Manor Gardens is one that will not soon be forgotten.

Facilities and Capacity

When booking with The Manor Gardens, couples will have a perfect blank canvas to create the wedding of their dreams. This venue of manicured lawns and pristine, private woodland affords wedding-goers ample opportunity for photos and a quiet space to catch up and enjoy the celebration. With the ability to choose between a country garden affair or a woodland wedding getaway, the happy couple and their loved ones can immerse themselves in the stunning scenery of this venue. Thanks to the open-plan nature of the gardens, this venue can be set up in any way that suits the needs of the couple and their guests.

Services Offered

The team at The Manor Gardens understands that no two couples are the same, so no two weddings should ever be the same. That’s why they don’t offer a ‘one-size-fits-all’ package, instead letting each couple's imagination run wild with the possibilities. From a festival-themed day to a vintage country garden party, opportunities for creativity are endless. The team here is available to assist to-be-weds throughout their journey, including vendor and supplier recommendations to service the day.

Very lovely setting

We used this venue for my daughters wedding, very lovely setting, and management could not have done more to help make the day go well. Thanks especially to Mark for his help. (Reviewed on Google)
